Brief description
The Master's in Engineering Project Management (MGPE) aims to educate professionals to take action in high-complexity engineering projects of with different profiles within the scope of technological implementation and development proceedings management. The training proposed by the MGPE makes it possible to specialise in three fields of Engineering projects: Industrial Engineering (projects within the scope of the processing industry, manufacturing industry and services), Information Systems (projects within the scope of information technologies and information systems) and Building (civil engineering buildings and public works). Training on MGPE provides competent and scientifically valid action within the scope of Engineering projects, balancing scientific and technological knowledge of the area of expertise with the capacity to plan, control and manage its execution in a cost-effective manner and with adequate quality levels.

MGPE is a teaching project that brings together three departments of the School of Engineering (Department of Production and Systems, Department of Information Systems and Department of Civil Engineering), gathering the human resources and available know-how of the three departments on the areas covered by the master, with this interdisciplinarity considered a great asset on the field of Project Management.
